“We’re now at a crossroads, as our lease is up soon on the networking facility where we’ve been hosting our servers,” Xanga CEO John Hiler writes in a blog post. “As the status quo is no longer possible, we’ve been working to figure out the best way for the Xanga community to move forward.”
Say it ain’t so! I personally blame John Hiller for doing such a lackluster job as CEO…example? Not listening to his base, no interest in selling merchandise or trying to make a meaningful deal with fb or twitter…basically he just sat on his ass and hoped for all the bloggers would somehow carry the website. just like he’s doing now, begging for us to kick in $60k when all he needed to do was some aggressive marketing and advertising. I’m gonna grab my poems and keep reaching for the stars. #Xanga, it was so good while it lasted.
